PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
A discovery made by a kung fu obsessed American teen sends him on an adventure to China, where he joins up with a band of martial arts warriors in order to free the imprisoned Monkey King.
Jackie Chan described the first day of shooting as "very relaxing", because the shots only required drama and walking, with no action.
What's going on? Hop?
Old Man Hop: You back again.
Jason Tripitikas: Oh, Sick!
Old Man Hop: Find good one?
The folklore associated with the Monkey King only has Five Finger Mountain, not Five Element Mountain. The mountain depicted in the movie is even shaped like five fingers. Hence Five Element Mountain is a mistranslation.
Jackie Chan and Jet Li are credited together before the title. Jackie Chan's name is spelled out horizontally, but Jet Li's is spelled out vertically, and the same "J" is used for both.
